Description:

We saw this butterfly so many times, but never managed to catch it. It appears similar to a Citrus swallowtail in flight, but is more yellow. Then, on our last day in the field, it was a bit slow as it flew from a patch of indigenous forest in the direction of the plantation. In a Federer-type of move, my field assistant (Megan) caught it in flight. She caught it in an annually-burned firebreak with tall grass, but I do not think it actually used this as habitat.

Along the gravel road among pine compartments. We saw it only an hour after the sun came out after two days of mist / rain. Its priority of feeding made it easier to take pictures of this strong flying butterfly.
